Our team of travellers Adam, Brad and Joe continued on their great USA adventure and landed at the beautiful Stone Zoo in Boston, MA. Right behind them were the gorilla, tiger, rhino and the rest of the crew, ready to settle into their new accommodation for the winter months in this wonderful surrounding.

The three worked alongside the Stone Zoo team to install the zoo’s new guests, with tourists excitedly following the team on the brick trail, patiently waiting to snap photos of their favourite animals set in their natural habitats.

After the two-day installation, ensuring all of the tree branches, plants and shrubs remained undisturbed, the Animal Paradise models were newly sited in prime positions throughout the Zoo. If you’re in New England during the colder months this year, be sure to visit Stone Zoo and witness pure Animal Paradise before it leaves in January 2020.

While the British models are wowing our North American fans, our tribute to American (and Soviet) engineering has arrived in Leicester, as Nat Rhodes reports.

One giant leap for BRICKLIVE – Leicester BID

Fifty years after two astronauts stepped foot on the moon, Ben and I took a giant leap into Leicester.

Although lift off was delayed, the Eagle has finally landed. Installing the models in over 10 locations in Leicester in one day was not an easy task. It was a triumph to place these incredible models throughout Leicester city centre in a one-day mission which included New Walk Museum and Art Gallery, the Curve Theatre, the Haymarket Shopping Centre and even the Showcase Cinema. The staff were extremely helpful and on hand to assist!
